Sweet Jean Parachutes single launch
This year’s Pyramid Rock Festival on Phillip Island in Victoria will be remembered by me not only as a paddock full of beer cans and flocks of seagulls. It will instead be remembered as the New Years Eve that someone threw a basketball at Dominic Simper of Tame Impala’s face.

Australian disc homeboys Van She have been pretty busy and spending a lot of their time these days in the air. They took some time out to play and hang out at the Australian Logitech UE launch at Oxford Art Factory last week and sent everyone in the building to the dancefloor with their new headphones on. El spoke to Michael of Van She about what the hap is!
You’ve just been on a huge tour and you haven’t really stopped, how are you feeling?

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Australia's unofficial anthem 'Great Southern Land', famous Aussie artists have collaborated together to produce a video clip that takes a fresh look at the song and the landscape down under.
